Phonics

An eight year old boy, called William, is the reason the Guinea Pig reading scheme exists. He was a very reluctant reader, who had barely made a start in acquiring literacy, but with our scheme, he had fluency in nine months.


An Intensive Course Of Systematic Phonics

1

Introduce initial sounds

Introduce sounds a few at a time and build up words. Sounds are taught in this order - c a t o d g f x v n p w e r m u h b s I k j y z qu l. To make this fun, play bingo, snakes and ladders, and matching pairs to reinforce the words.


2

Double consonant blends

Learn to blend initial sounds together, like spot the dog and doll in a pram. Then, teach double consonant endings, such as soft cat rests. Syllable words (like lemon, seven, kitten) are also taught at this stage.


3

Introduce vowel digraphs

Start introducing vowel digraphs like ee, oo, ar, or, ur, ir, oa, ai, ay, oi. Plus, consonant digraphs, like ch, sh, th, wh, ph. For each of these sounds we provide word and sentence matching activities.


4

Start reading easy stories

Once the first sounds have been introduced, it’s time to start reading simple stories, which introduce more complicated sounds. The stories are simple ones, which children can identify with and the pictures rough and offer opportunity for colouring.

Learn To Read With Phonics

Why labour teaching your child to read? This scheme is a fast, fun way to teach a child to learn to read, in only 8 books. Read the stories together and match the words. Follow the humorous adventures of Sam and his friends, as you build up a series of phonic sounds. You and your child will be on the road to fluency in as little as 6 months.
